    Club Car, Inc. Dedicated to Developing Solutions That Deliver

    Great Golf Experiences to Courses and Players

    Pioneering innovations that add safety, comfort, reliability and performance to the golf car industry, Club Car, Inc., has established itself as one of the leading brands in golf.

    The driving force behind the Augusta, GA-based company for more than 40 years has been manufacturing the highest quality golf, utility and transportation vehicles that enhance the enjoyment of the game for millions of golfers. Equally important is the company's relationship with its customers who look to Club Car for solutions to their needs for best-in-class performance and simplified, cost-effective fleet management.

    Club Car has a rich heritage of innovation. The company consistently has been first to market with major improvements that include rustproof and corrosion resistant aluminum frames, self-adjusting rack-and-pinion steering, Tranquility? gasoline powertrain, 48-volt electric powertrain with motor braking that recharges batteries and ArmorFlex? body with molded-in colors.

    Industry surveys have long recognized that Club Car produces the most reliable, best performing vehicles backed by superior service and support. Recent independent surveys of golf course owners, managers, head professionals and golf course superintendents confirmed that Club Car golf and utility vehicles lead the industry in customer satisfaction, market share and overall value.

    In a survey of golf fleet decision-makers, the Jackson Organization of Columbia, MD, found Club Car to be considered the best, most reliable golf car on the market. The survey indicated a clear preference for Club Car in areas relating to golf car use, preference and quality.

    Similar results were found by Power Systems Research, which placed Club Car ahead of rivals in overall market share based on unit sales and overall sales volume.

    In the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America's biannual survey, Club Car was named No. 1 across all categories surveyed for the sixth consecutive year. On average, Club Car ranked more than 20 percentage points higher than its closest competitor in the three major categories: performance, reliability and service/support. The GCSAA survey also named Club Car the preferred brand in all three categories in the golf utility vehicle market.
